The program will feature lectures, papers and posters by noted American and Japanese hand surgeons. The theme of the meeting is "Unsolved Problems in Hand Surgery." Topics include perplexing problems in arthritis, congenital anomalies, flaps, scaphoid fractures, nerve injuries and distal radius fractures.

Attendees are encouraged to participate in fun activities such as golf, snorkeling, whale watching, kayaking and more. We hope you will join us in beautiful Maui, Hawaii.
At the completion of this program, attendee(s) will be able to:
- Learn new treatments and techniques for unsolved hand and upper extremity surgery problems.
- Improve professional practices and patient care.
- Discuss and critique reports of clinical advances and new research findings in hand and upper extremity surgery.
- Engage professional interaction with your colleagues from the United States, Japan and others abroad.
